bobbuilds: Thanks Bob, appreciate the the offer, have a great trip.
yakr: Awesome, thanks for the recommendation. I gave it a quick look and will do a post later today.
one leg: Thanks so much for the offer. This is almost exactly what I was hoping for, someone to show me the ropes
but was needing something a bit closer to the front range. If you, or anyone you know, are headed closer to the front range over the next 2 weeks, let me know, it may work for me to join in. Don't you need to make a trip to Neptune Mountaineering for a gear run??? Thanks again.
